Oklahoma Lead Paint Poisoning Lawyers
Every day of your life, you may be unwittingly exposed to toxic substances. When these exposures occur in small doses over a lengthy period of time, or through fewer, stronger doses, you might become seriously ill without any immediate insight regarding the source of your sickness. Such is the case with lead poisoning. Lead is a heavy metal that is used in a wide variety of products, though its use has been increasingly regulated because of known adverse health effects associated with exposure to even small amounts of this substance.
If you or your loved one has suffered illness due to a property owner’s failure to address the presence of excessive lead in paint, blinds, or elsewhere on the premises, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit seeking financial compensation. The medical expenses and other financial complications that you have and will likely continue to experience as a consequence of their negligence are likely to be substantial and should not be borne by you, the victim.

Symptoms of Lead Poisoning
There are many potential routes to lead paint exposure and the most likely source depends heavily upon a person’s age, living conditions, occupation, and regular activities. Older homes and workplaces frequently contain lead-based paint that may chip or peel off of the walls, further heightening the threat to a resident or worker’s safety. Excessive exposure to lead can result in the following health complications:
- Severe headaches
- Memory loss
- Kidney failure
- Pain or tingling sensations in the hands and feet
- Hearing loss
- Delayed growth
- Disruptions of the nervous system
- Infertility and other reproductive complications
